Gibberellic Acid (GA3) Experiments

I bought 5g of powder claiming to be gibberellic acid on eBay and dissolved it down in a dilute isopropyl alcohol/water solution to 500ppm from which I've made a 50ppm solution that I've been spraying everywhere: apple blossoms, peach blossoms, a cut back fern, the Cactuses etc.


I just separated out A through H (8 different sources) of hot pepper seeds which I've never been able to germinate. Like Chiltepin, Carolina Reaper, Ghost Pepper, 7-pot brain strain... so I'm soaking them in a 250ppm solution with hopes that will break the dormancy.


Nothing much came from this, I think I may have used too much isopropyl maybe? No chile pepper seeds germinated and I didn't really notice too much of a difference on the apple and peach tree. The fern didn't survive. May re-visit this someday!
